This month CNNGo discovers Indonesia’s beautiful island escape, Bali. The show goes beyond the daily tourist trail and looks at why Bali has beckoned so many to its shores.

Legendary Indonesian surfer Rizal Tanjung reveals where he first fell in love with the waves and lets CNNGo get a close up look at the world famous pipe of Padang Padang beach.

Artist Natisa Jones shows the more mellow side of the island in Sanur and takes CNNGo up into the green fields of Ubud to try the famous pig dish ‘babi guling’ and gives an insight into Bali’s new art scene.

Finally, Chef Chris Salans from Ubud’s top restaurant, Mozaic, takes CNNGo into the rice fields to show where he gets inspiration for his menu, while sunglasses designer Suki shows CNNGo where the hip and beautiful hang out at Potato Head beach club.
